On Thursday's Political Rewind, we waded into impeachment news to check on how Georgians may be reacting to the ongoing trial of President Donald Trump. Georgia’s attorney general added his name to a letter from the top prosecutors in 21 other states who are calling impeachment an unconstitutional partisan effort.

In news surrounding the presidential race, Sen. Bernie Sanders is showing gains in national polling and in key Democratic primary states. Our panel analyzed his surge.

And as budget hearings continue in the Georgia legislature, some are raising the alarm about what cuts in funding could mean to state employees and the public.

Panelists:

State Sen. Brandon Beach — (R-Alpharetta)

Dr. Andra Gillespie — Professor of Political Science

Tamar Hallerman — Senior Reporter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

State Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver — (D-Decatur)
